OCEANSIDE, Calif. - An 18-year-old man was behind bars Monday after allegedly confessing to killing one man and wounding another in a shooting at an Oceanside apartment complex.

Calvin Glass, Jr., was taken into custody at the Escondido Transit Center around 4:15 p.m. Sunday in connection with the shootings at the complex at 3699 Barnard Drive about two hours earlier, Oceanside police Lt. Matt Cole said.

Glass was turned over to Oceanside police detectives and allegedly confessed to shooting the two victims, Cole said. A possible motive for the shootings was not immediately disclosed, but Glass and the two victims all lived in the apartment building, according to news reports.

Cole said officers called to the Shadow Ridge Apartments around 2:10 p.m. Sunday found the fatally wounded victim, who died at the scene, and the less severely injured man, who was taken to a hospital to be treated for non- life-threatening injuries. Neither man's name was immediately available.

Witnesses at the apartment complex provided information that later led police to Glass, according to the lieutenant.

Glass was being held at the Vista Detention Facility on suspicion of murder and attempted murder. He is scheduled to appear in court to be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to jail records.

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2013 firearms (excluding BB and pellet guns) caused 84,258 nonfatal injuries (26.65 per 100,000 U.S. citizens) and 33,636 deaths (10.6 per 100,000).

    There are 319 million people in the U.S., which means about 1 out of every 2705 people in the U.S. was shot by a firearm in 2013; about 1 out of every 9,484 people in the U.S. was killed by a firearm in 2013.

    Extrapolating over a typical lifetime of 74 years and assuming the above trends continue, 1 out of 36 people currently alive in the U.S. will be shot by a firearm during their lifetime; 1 out of every 128 people in the U.S. will be killed by a firearm during their lifetime (most well before they reach 74 years of age).
